Now I see how much trouble. If the New Democratic Socialists get their way 2018 will be the year that evidentiary rules are eliminated from America’s pesky judicial system. The NDS don’t feel you should have to produce evidence to substantiate your claims. After all, “my truth” is what counts. They don’t really believe in absolute truths...
  • Dems increasingly whisper about the ‘impeachment’ of Trump if they regain the House

    Big Plans: Democrats are increasingly confident of two things — one, that the party will regain control of the House after the November midterms; and two, they will immediately begin impeachment proceedings against POTUS Donald Trump. Never mind that recent polling suggests that would be political suicide.

    Democrats are largely ducking the topic on the campaign trail, but few people in Washington doubt that it will be on the table if they win the House. COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — President Trump was energized. Fresh from the fight to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, he was firing up thousands of supporters at a rally by complaining about how Democrats had treated his nominee and how they may yet try to remove Justice Kavanaugh from the bench. “They’re saying, ‘We’ll impeach him!’” Mr. Trump practically bellowed into the microphone here last week, his voice brimming with incredulity and righteous outrage. “Impeach...

    Let's start with the domestic front of the Russia hoax. Sundance at Conservative Tree House has an excellent post up: "President Trump and DAG Rod Rosenstein - "No Collusion", No Immediate Worries..." The overall theme is one that's dear to Sundance's heart: leverage.-snip- There is now a concrete storyline backed by irrefutable evidence: The FBI allowed itself to take political opposition research created by one party to defeat another in an election, treated it like actionable intelligence, presented it to the court as substantiated, and then used it to justify spying on an adviser for the campaign of that party's...
  • Hillary Clinton draws contrast between sexual misconduct accusations against Trump, Bill Clinton

    Hillary Clinton is drawing a contrast between the sexual misconduct allegations against her husband, former President Clinton, and those leveled against President Trump. In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, said the main difference between the allegations is that there was an investigation led by Republicans into the claims against her husband, while Clinton said there has been no serious investigation of Trump. "There's a very significant difference, and that is the intense, long-lasting, partisan investigation that was conducted in the '90s," Clinton said. "If the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down, want a comparison, they should welcome such...

    Americans horrified by the conduct of the Senate Judiciary Committee over recent weeks should take heed. The reprehensible antics of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, and the complicity of her Democratic colleagues, revealed for the country a spectacle that was nothing less than a dress rehearsal for the impeachment of President Trump. In fact, the success of the Trump administration in front of that very Judiciary Committee by seating two conservative Supreme Court justices practically guarantees that if the Democrats win control of the House in November, they will move to impeach the president. Why? Because Trump-deranged Democrats know full well that...
  • Justice Kavanaugh may be headed for impeachment if Democrats win a House majority

    Fox News ^ | October 6, 2018 | Michael Starr Hopkins, Clinton and Obama Aide
    The Senate narrowly approved Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court on Saturday on a 50-48 vote, but serious questions remain about allegations against him of sexual misconduct and lying under oath. These might lead to his impeachment if Democrats win control of one or both chambers of Congress in the midterm elections. At this point, any impeachment effort against Kavanaugh would be premature – and couldn’t realistically begin as long as Democrats are in the minority in the House. Instead, a real, in-depth FBI investigation of allegations against Kavanaugh is needed. This investigation should not have a time limit...

    Washington (CNN)As Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh awaits a final Senate confirmation vote, a lawyer representing Christine Blasey Ford says she absolutely does not want him impeached if Democrats take control of Congress. Ford's attorney Debra Katz tells CNN's Dana Bash in an interview that Ford only wanted to tell her story to Senate Judiciary Committee members. She doesn't want the process to drag on into the next Congress should Democrats end up winning control on Capitol Hill. "Professor Ford has not asked for anything of the sort. What she did was to come forward and testify before the Senate...

    Two hundred Congressional Democrats determined to take down the Trump presidency are suing in federal court, claiming the president is violating a provision of the U.S. Constitution. This lawsuit lays out the Democratic Party’s roadmap to impeachment. Friday a federal judge gave the lawsuit the go- ahead. Democrats are suing based on the Constitution’s obscure “emoluments clause.” They’re intent on making “emoluments” a household word. What’s an emolument, anyway? It’s a gift that could be used to bribe an official. The Constitution bars U.S. officials from taking “any present, emolument,” title or job from foreign governments. “If discovered,” framer Edmund...

    Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., echoed Leader Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday, saying Democrats shouldn’t consider impeaching Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate makes it decision and the FBI finishes its reopened background check. Though a number of key House Democrats have said they want to investigate the allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh if their party wins the lower chamber in November, Democratic leaders were more hesitant to jump on the bandwagon. “I don’t want to prejudge,” Hoyer said Thursday in a sit-down with reporters, where he boasted about Democrats' chances of flipping control of the House. “I...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that it is not her “plan” to impeach Brett Kavanaugh if he is confirmed to the Supreme Court and Democrats win back the House this fall. “That would not be my plan,” Pelosi said during an appearance at the Atlantic Festival in Washington, D.C. “I have enough people on my back to impeach the president.” “It’s about unifying,” she added. “Let's hope, with the information that comes forward, and with the demonstration of temperament that is not judicial, that the Senate will do the right thing.” Pelosi struck a similar tone at...

    Immigration, impeachment, trade and a full-bore effort to portray Democrats as hard-line leftists in thrall to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) — that’s the recipe for success for the GOP in the midterm elections, according to a new poll obtained exclusively by The Hill. Those are the issues that can shift voters nationwide and shore up Republicans in endangered GOP districts, the poll suggests. But the survey will be controversial for two reasons. First, its findings suggest that the GOP’s best chances for keeping the House in November lie in stoking hot issues even further. Second, it was commissioned...

    David P. Schippers Jr., the Republican Party’s chief counsel in the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, died of pancreatic cancer Friday at 88 at his home in Grayslake. In 1998, U.S. Rep. Henry J. Hyde, R-Illinois, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, appointed Mr. Schippers to be the committee’s chief investigator as it weighed whether to endorse the impeachment of Clinton. After independent counsel Ken Starr had recommended 11 grounds for impeachment, including obstruction of justice and lying under oath, Mr. Schippers, a Chicago criminal defense lawyer and former federal prosecutor, said there were at least 15. “If you...

    A counter move to future judicial witch hunts and high-tech lynchings -- if they think that Trump is so vile toward women that his nominees should be Feinsteined, then...! What the heck about Bill Clinton's judges? Fair is fair. Only agree to future witch hunts if Clinton's judges are re-examined just as thoroughly. It is a certainty that some of Bill Clinton's judges committed sex crimes. Not only is the ex-president well established as the most vile individual to ever be elected, but he befriended other perverts and rewarded his mistress with a federal job. Where did Clinton first meet...

    A dress rehearsal for impeachment Pat Buchanan: The assault on Kavanaugh is the playbook for what is planned for Trump In his 30 hours of public testimony before the judiciary committee prior to Thursday, no senator had raised an issue of a sexual misconduct. But if Brett Kavanaugh is elevated to the Supreme Court, it will be because, in his final appearance, he tore up the script assigned to him. He set aside his judicial demeanor to fight for his good name with the passion and righteous rage of the innocent and good man he believes himself to be. More...

    Time will tell whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed after Thursday’s hearing which focuses on sexual assault allegations against him. Christine Blasey Ford described to the Senate Judiciary Committee how he allegedly assaulted her at a gathering in the early 1980s. Thursday afternoon, Kavanaugh will have a chance to tell his side of the story, and it will be up to the Committee members to vote on whether to move forward with his confirmation. That being said, even if Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court, he may not be totally out of the woods. Like a...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono on Sunday suggested that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's "outcome-driven" conservative judicial philosophy directly undermines the credibility of his denials that he sexually assaulted California professor Christine Ford at a house party more than three decades ago. Speaking to CNN's "State of the Union," Hirono, D-Hawaii, called for an independent FBI investigation of Ford's claims, before explaining why the presumption of innocence and due process should not apply to Kavanaugh's case. "I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases," Hirono told host Jake...
